Episode 126:
Dual Format HD DVD/Blu-ray Disks (and Players!), Faster Firefox, Scan Film

What's new in Episode 126
STUFF
• Scanning film? David Stone, PCMag's scanner mavin reccomends Canon CanoScan 8400F (or it's new follow up, the 8600). Six color scanning? Check out HP's Scanjet G4050 Photo Scanner. BTW, OCR software doesn't suck anymore: OmniPage Professional 15 is the best OCR software out there.
• 1366x768: This is not an HD resolution. OK, it is, but it's really annoying.
• Power supplies... is there an advantage to putting 'em at the bottom of the case?
• Camcorders: SD vs. HD for Marcos in Brazil
• iTablet: Myth or Macworld? From Apple? Myth, tho Other World Computing will debut Axiotron's ModBook, a MacBook turned into a tablet before Steve Jobs keynote at Macworld next week!
• Thanks Lee, for the heads up on Weatherbonk.com. Weather meets the Google map API!
• We're going to CES in Las Vegas next week, you can come see us! We're taping Sunday at 1PM, Monday, Tuesday and Wedneday at 4PM. Our stage will be in the Sands Expo Center lobby, outside of Hall C. (The shows will be available for download Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning!)
NEWS
• Dual format HD DVD/Blu-ray discs and dual format players? Are HD DVD and Blu-ray coming together?
• Adobe Reader 6 and 7 have Javascript security hole... time to upgrade to Reader 8! Or better yet, Foxit Reader! (Has anybody checked Foxit for the same flaw?)
• Brazilian Court Orders YouTube to Shutdown
